Sitting Around the Fire Pit

Let me piggyback on my last blog. I recently was part of a conversation in the faculty lunchroom that included one teacher describing a lovely evening with her family sitting around the fire pit in the back yard just talking together, no smart phones, no tablets, no television, just family. Then today, I read this article about how to deal with a 12 year old technology addict. The two together reminded me yet again that in 2015 we have lots of choices to make, and how we use (and limit) technology is just one of them.

This week we observed the National Day of Prayer. Students gathered in groups of all ages and prayed together. Gathered around the warmth of God's truth and keeping Him in the center of our decision making will give us direction in all things, even how we use the digital media that pervades our lives. That is what it's all about.
